This is a nice bench. The through tenons and ebony add nice details to the piece. I enjoy working with jatoba but I found it to be hard on my blades.
Thanks for the post.

Thanks for the nice comments, all. And you’re right, Scott. I have to sharpen my chisels regularly when I work on this project! I do love the look of jatoba, but it is one VERY hard wood, and it splinters easily.
By the way, this project will be in the next (June) issue of Popular Woodworking.

Looks Japanese in design. A hint of greene & greene, with a side of A & C. Very nice.

This is beautiful. I love the joinery and the fact that you put the stretcher so low to the ground. Great lines and flow.
